Monday 3rd

There were some showers during the day. I went down to the village in the afternoon to post some letters, changed some books at the Library, carried up some sand.

Sunday 2nd

It was a fine day. Revd O’Blundell preached his farewell sermon in the Hall in the morning, it was also a memorial service for the late Mr D Matheson. Mr Ashworth presided at the organ and played the Dead March at the conclusion of the service, Mr Handby, Jim Greenwood and Minnie came up here for dinner, Jane had dinner at old Mrs Dunnings. Jim G & I walked up the hill to call on Mr Murray.

August Saturday 1st

It was very fine in the morning and early part of the afternoon and the ground was drying up nicely, but later in the afternoon it came on a misty rain. Willie was cutting tea tree in the forest and I was helping him until my slasher handle broke and I had to knock off. Grace & Jane went to see Mrs Ashworth in the morning, Mrs Simpson came from Ti Point and met them there and all of them returned here late in the afternoon.
In the afternoon I sowed seeds of the following in a box. Dimorphotheca. Double Pink Godetia. Calliopsis Drummondii and Guillardia (mixed).
